Concussion Fact Sheet

A Concussion is a brain injury that may be caused by a blow to the head, face, neck, or elsewhere on the body with an “impulsive” force transmitted to the head. Concussions can also result from hitting a hard surface. ALL concussions are serious and can occur in any sport.

Any blow to the head that results in concussive symptoms requires IMMEDIATE refrain from all activity, as it can help to prevent further injury or even death. 

The Sage Colleges performs baseline testing at the start of each athletic season. This testing includes orientation questions, immediate memory, exertional maneuvers, neurologic screening, concentration, and delayed recall.  If a head injury is sustained, the testing is repeated; comparison to baseline determines an athlete’s safe return to athletics.

Any head injury MUST be reported to the athletic trainers and coaches.  Failure to report could result in chronic issues – headache, concentration problems, seizures, and possible death.


NCAA Sickle Cell Fact Sheet

Sickle Cell Traits for Student-Athletes 

Sickle Cell Trait is the inheritance of one gene for normal hemoglobin and one gene for sickle hemoglobin.  While this condition is generally benign, under circumstances of intense or extensive exertion, the sickle hemoglobin may change the shape of red blood cells from round to quarter moon or crescent shaped, described as sickle.  The altered shape can result in the blockage of blood flow to muscles (including the heart), rapid deterioration of muscle tissue, heart arrhythmias, kidney failure and subsequent death.  The necessity of knowing an athlete’s status as a carrier of the sickle cell trait is pertinent to his/her safety, as this condition is easily treated with recognition of signs/symptoms, rest and IV fluids. 

Sickle cell trait is most often found in African Americans, but also in those with Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Central and South American ancestry.  Newborn testing for the trait is now widespread; however, the NCAA and NATA recommend testing of all athletes, as they may not have been previously screened or do not know the results of the screen.
